To become an RSVP Volunteer Station we need a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed every three years, which ensures compliance with RSVP program regulations. To qualify for consideration as an RSVP Volunteer Station, an applicant agency must be a public or private nonprofit organization or a proprietary health care agency, meet a critical community need, and provide meaningful and challenging volunteer assignments.
It is required that RSVP receive written job descriptions for the volunteer placements to ensure a successful and positive experience and so that volunteers will perform their assigned service activities. The application includes a Volunteer Safety Checklist in order to assess that the environment of the partner station is safe for every volunteer. By signing the MOU the volunteer station has read and agrees to the Volunteer Station Roles and Responsibilities and assures that the station will not discriminate against RSVP volunteers on the basis of race; color; national origin; sex; age; political affiliation; religion; or on the basis of a disability.
Volunteer service activities with the partner stations will continue to be monitored and managed using Volunteer Reporter Software, which collects data such as station information, dates, jobs, volunteers and hours. This will ensure that volunteers are performing their assigned service activities and prevent or identify prohibited activities.
